Thanks to robieobie1 for this awesome extra, sounds delicious. It plumps out of the bottle looking thick, cloudy, almost-syrupy even, mango-colored (go figure) and pretty much as opaque as it gets. It looks much more like full-on mango juice than actual beer. The soapy white head is barely noticed as it fades within seconds. I actually kind of dig the look, but by "beer" standards, it could use a little work.
Grassy mangoes come to mind as I lean in for a whiff. Juicy-ass mangoes with a light brushing of grassy hops. Very sweet, very thick, and very juicy with even a touch of tartness in the back end. So not only does it look like mango juice, it smells like it, too. Pungent mangoes and grassy hops - that'll do! Some light alcohol becomes noticeable with warmth - not surprising, given the ABV.
Wow, what a huge mouth feel! Heavy, thick, and sticky as they come - chalk up another check mark in the "mango juice" column! At this point, I'm beginning to wonder if this is beer, or just alcoholic mango juice! The mango flavors are so fresh and pure; sweet, succulent mangoes crowd each and every sip, accompanied by a warming alcoholic presence. Don't let the relatively light color of the beer fool you - it's huge.
Big-time sweet mangoes, almost to a certain degree of tartness, finish things out and leave your mouth feeling like you just chugged a gallon of mango juice. Aside from some light grass here, or faint bready malt there, this beer is nothing but mango, mango, mango - all day, in your face. It's a big goddamn beer, and I challenge anybody who thinks fruity beers are weak to try and chug this shit. It's cumbersome when gulped, but damn good to sip in small doses.
Thanks again to robieobie1 for this one. It didn't quite turn out like I expected, though it was a pretty good evening sipper either way. Like an adults only version of Minute Maid's mango juice; have a glass of this before supper and you'll off to bed in no time. A sweet and savory motherfucker, no doubt, but not in your typical "big-sweet-beer" kind of way.
